Publication Abstract

Turrell, G., John W. Lynch, George A. Kaplan, S.A. Everson, E.L. Helkala, J. Kauhanen, and J.T. Salonen. 2001. "Socioeconomic Position Across the Lifecourse and Cognitive Functions in Late Middle Age." Journals of Gerontology B: Psychological and Social Sciences, 257(1): S43-S51.

Their findings indicate that socioeconomic conditions across all stages of the lifecourse appear to make unique contributions to cognitive function in late middle age.
